Information about this Gingerbread Display:
This was my first non-traditional gingerbread house! I painted the pieces with white food coloring to look like stucco and added Ivy and garlands. The brick is made of starbursts and the roof is made of fondant. I used gelatin sheets for the windows and added fairy lights to the inside. There are two Christmas trees housed inside. The double wraparound porches have almond slice flooring, candy cane support poles, and wrought iron fencing made from spaghetti covered in royal icing.
